    1. Why are you asking us? We don't represent Loughborough university.
    2. Shouldn't you have sorted this a month ago? People have already started university.

    If you borrow a copy of the Daily Telegraph published on results day you will see the courses that were in Clearing this year. Ask your local library.

    However, just because a course is in Clearing in a given year doesn't mean it will be in Clearing next year. Also universities may or may not reduce their offers during Clearing anyway. It all depends on many things including supply and demand.

    Your best strategy is to apply to a couple of universities above your prediction (aspirational choices), 1 or 2 at your prediction and 1 or 2 below your prediction (insurances). And then see what offers you get and what results you actually achieve, before worryng about Clearing...
